    May 1565. Suleiman the Magnificent, emperor of the Ottomans, has declared a jihad against the Knights of Saint John the Baptist. The largest armada of all time approaches the Knights' Christian stronghold on the island of Malta. The Turks know the Knights as the "The Hounds of Hell." The Knights call themselves "The Religion".

    "Great Book"
    Overall

    I loved this book from start to finish. Great characters and character development. I can't wait for the sequel. If you like this book you might also like George Martin's a book of fire and ice.

When his marriage suddenly ends, Edgar begins to wish he hadn't survived his injuries. He wants out. His psychologist suggests a new life distant from the Twin Cities, along with something else.

    "Like fine wine Stephen King improves with age"
    Overall

    I have read every book by Stephen Hing and I love his character development and their relationships, this is what makes his books so good to read. This book is so much more subtle than some of his work and his use of words to paint a vivid picture has never been better, especially the scene with LinkBelt... LinkBelt...LinkBelt. He is improving with age and if you love Stephen King and his more recnet work, such as Lisey's Story and the DArk Tower series than you will love Duma Key.

  • The Pillars of the Earth

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    Joseph says: "Good historical setting, but loose story."
    "Very good book"
    Overall

    I decided to read this book after reading the comments. It was a very good read, with excellent character development, a great plot, and lots of twists and turns. I am now going to read the sequel and I hope it is just as good. If you like historical fiction than you will love this book with its rich characters.
